Kabat-Thomas Cello Duo

Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra cellists Peter Thomas and Madeleine Kabat first met more than a decade ago while attending the Cleveland Institute of Music, but it wasn’t until they reconnected years later in Milwaukee that love struck. The husband and wife cello duo was shaped through their individual paths and performance experiences. Kabat, a seasoned soloist and chamber musician, and Thomas, an MSO veteran and indie-rocker, teamed up to form the Kabat-Thomas Cello Duo as an extension of their passion for the instrument. Witness the synchronicity of MSO’s cello couple in an intimate performance that celebrates virtuosic cello classics, as well as a premiere from renowned Brookfield composer Brian Packham.

Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound

Paul Cebar Tomorrow Sound is the latest in "fresh venerable," taking his cues from the dance bands of western Louisiana (and his native Midwest); the streets (and 45s) of New Orleans; touring African and Caribbean combos; and the soul, funk, and blues of his youth coupled with early, teeth-cutting experience in the verbal hotbeds of the coffeehouse scene. A masterful synthesis of rhythmic culture, Cebar is complemented by an elite crew of offhand adepts who bring their own wood to the fire. Benefiting from years of understated hipness, the band brings forth a funky, lyrically charged racket that sits comfortably with soulful sounds the world over. Tickets: $37 Prices may rise based on demand. 262-781-9520 or www.wilson-center.com boxoffice@wilson-center.com Corporate/individual groups of 10+ receive 5% off. Nonprofit groups of 10+ receive 10% off. The Wilson Center is located in Brookfield's Mitchell Park, off Capitol Drive, just west of Brookfield Road. Parking is always free!
